This review is not for the EV version

The Consumer Reports review is just for the gas engine powered Spark. The EV version is under testing and validation, so it may be modified and improved before production begins. The few negative details, such as slow acceleration, noisy interior, weak seat support, etc., may be fixed by July 2013, so we need to wait until November 2013 to read a new review for the Spark EV.

Long wait from now. But at least the issues with the Spark isn't as bad as what people are experiencing with the new Ford Escape. I was looking into CUV's at one point and the 2013 Escape is a disaster on wheels

Haha yup. Always something exciting like that with Ford. I remember a long time ago Ford Explorer's were rolling over due to some issue with the tire or something long those lines.
